. >> susan rice goes to capitol hill and she says, hey, you know what, bad intel, i made a mistake, i'm sorry. i am glad that the people that are in economy party on capitol hill have hearts as big as a montana sky because i'm sure they said, hey, it's cool. we all make mistakes. all of us on capitol hill, we all make mistakes from time to time and it's cool. so how did this work out after she said she was sorry? >> there's still another chance. ambassador susan rice is heading back to capitol hill today. >> i want to know what happened. >> well, i will tell you. she continued to defend her response on september 11th attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi as a top pick to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. rice faces sort of an uphill battle because she failed to win over her harshest republican critics yesterday. >> i don't think it's an uphill battle. >> unless you want to be secretary of state for greenvil greenville, south carolina or mesa -- >> she requested this meeting was with specifically senators lindsey graham, kelly ayotte and -- >> they were upset. john mccain over the
the whole white house. take a listen. >> so when the president says that susan rice was giving out -- talking about the most updated and -- fully documented intelligence that the intelligence community had, that's not true. >> last night the message was that susan rice was disseminating incorrect intelligence and the president is wrong for defending her. now here is mr. king today after an intelligence briefing. >> did he seem concerned that things had been changed? was that surprising to you? >> he seemed to say at the time they didn't realize the full significance of that and that or an unclassified statement it was acceptable. again, it's still very vague. >> petraeus told king today that, quote, for an unclassified statement this was acceptable. again, it's still very vague. dana, to paraphrase the president, republicans got out in front of their own skis on this one, didn't they? >> yes. well, in congress they have a tradition of revising and extending their remarks and i think peter king -- what peter king just said was "never mind." >> what he said earlier, what do we do wit
% but a different 47% all over again. the susan rice controversy which i don't really know if it is a real controversy or if it is just republicans trying to play politics over something. we'll be getting to that as well. the fiscal cliff right now somewhere in america a man named cliff is plotting on killing the coworker who keeps calling him fiscal. finally, secession because really folks why don't you just go overseas and be ignorant there for awhile. i have one rule on secession if you can't spell it, you're not allowed to do it. or am i wrong dan? if you can't spell it, should you be encouraged to do it? >> when you say you want to secede and become part of canada or move to another country where they accept gay marriage, then your adjust an idiot. >> john: they have so insulted the rest of the world for everything, there's no one who would take them. go ahead and secede and try to restart the confederacy again. let's put that on tv and make that a pay-per-view special and balance the budget that way. take your calls as
to resolve some of that. even susan rice and what may be her political future if she were to be nominated from the secretary of state position. having that focus on her is also another way of shining a light on benghazi and trying to get more answers. so that's part of what we see is happening. it's complicated, but there seems to be movement in getting key people here to talk about what went on, what was known, and why some things happened that resulted in those deaths. thomas? >> real quickly. yesterday lindsay graham and mccain teaming up to announce the desire for a select committee. >> a select committee would give broad jurisdiction where different committees would have the resources to sort of work together. you saw it in water gate. there are other doing work that said we don't need to establish another one. so it's not openly welcomed as an idea. but it's a way to try to shine a light on the issues. so that's yet to be seen. investigations are under way in different ways. we'll see if a select committee ever happens. >> i appreciate it. i want to say good morning to the political
took a wide range of questions. he launched a strong defense of u.n. ambassador susan rice whose been under fire from republicans for the administration's handling of the benghazi attack. >> she has done exemplarily work. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> reporter: for the first time, president obama weighed in on the scandal that cost david petraeus his job as cia director. >> i have no evidence at this point from what i have seen that classified information was disclosed that in any way would have had a negative impact on our national security. >> reporter: tomorrow the president sits down with leaders from both parties at the white house. and their big topic, the fiscal cliff. rob, paula, back to you. >> a fly on that wall. the president takes a break today from the fiscal crisis ills to visit some storm damaged areas here in new york. the president will meet with residents and first responders during an afternoon visit. thousand of people on long island are still without power. now more than two weeks after sandy
mccain joins me now. you said you are going to block susan rice's nomination if president obama nominates her. her supporters say she was repeating the assessment she had been given about the benghazi attack. a spokesperson confirmed that they confirmed the attack and later the assessment changed do you not believe that? >> well first of all, talking points came from the white house not from the dmi. it was obvious within the 24 hours that the station chief from the cia had said that this was a terrorist attack. it was obvious to one and all that this was not a quote spontaneous demonstration because in realtime, they saw that there was no demonstration. ms. rise, i hope, saw ambassador rise, i hope, saw when i was on "face the nation" that immediately after she spoke, the head of the national assembly said it was an al qaeda attack. every one new that. and she continued to tell the world through all the talkshows that, that it was a quote spontaneous demonstration sparked by a video. that is not competence in ny view. and i think that she should have known and she has never yet
they are picking on susan rice because she is a woman. but i do think these things are heating up so quickly that they better not get backed into corners that they can't get backed out of. >> the truth of the matter is that they have to have this meeting. they have to sit down and discuss things where the cameras aren't there. >> however, we know from history with this president and these congressional leaders that most of the real work is going to get done on the phone with the house speaker and the president and their aids. so that is the reality this is an opening gambit and probably not much more. i talked to a good source here asking do you think if she is nominated you do overcome a filibuster and the answer was yes. if anybody wanted to watch two old white guys beat up on a black woman i'll sell tickets to that. there is politics all around here. >> thank you. >> thank you. >> well, let us know what you think about this. i'm tweeting about this already. up next why did the justice department keep the president in the dark about the petreaus scandal. plus the investigation of paula bro
the killings in benghazi the u.s. ambassador to the united nations susan rice said what she said about the spontaneous reaction? >> well, i've always thought based on what we heard from the very start that there was a big disconnect between the information i thought i was looking at and what the president said yesterday they had. i thought the most interesting thing in the president's comments yesterday was that susan rice had all of the information they had and related all of that information. that just doesn't seem reasonable to me. if they did -- if that was all the information they had, i wonder why somebody at the white house wasn't asking more questions. and that may be the biggest question here as we go forward. >> are you with some of those republicans like senator mccain, senator lindsey graham who will do everything in their power to block her nomination as secretary of state if it goes forward? >> well, i think again, the question there is what did ambassador rice know? why is that what she knew? and why was she the person sent out to represent the administration? the presid
out at susan rice, the leading candidate to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. because she initially suggested the attack began as a protest. >> why would susan rice not get our vote? i don't trust her. >> reporter: we put that to the president. senator graham said he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice after what she said about benghazi. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> reporter: and a blistering response to that, senator graham issued a statement to the president saying, quote, don't think for one minute that i don't hold you responsible. i think you failed as commander-in-chief before, during, and after the attack. in other words, there is a major showdown on this still to come. jonathan karl, abc news, the white house. >> three republican senators hoping to launch a congressional committee, kind of a watergate style to investigate exactly what happened. >>> former cia dir
again. >> hey, joe. >> you know, susan rice, our u.n. ambassador, has been taking a lot of heat. john mccain, lindsey graham going after her for repeating what the president says was the intel that was available at the time. you're on the committee. can you tell us, was susan rice, from what you know, just repeating what was being told to everybody in washington at the time on what had happened in benghazi? >> well, here's what i think, joe. i think without question, i mean, you know, you've got guys storming a consulate with ak-47s, with rpgs and firing mortars. they knew immediately this was a terrorist attack. there wasn't any question about that. and why the white house didn't come out and say that immediately, i don't know. they tried to soften it somewhat with regard to it was a spontaneous action that stemmed from a protest. there was a question about whether protesters were there. and five days later, susan rice goes on tv and says that not only was it a protest, but it apparently stemmed from this trailer or this movie that had been shown. and very honestly by that point in time
.s. -- united nations ambassador susan rice for the benghazi response. here is what the president said. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> okay. so it took senator john mccain about an hour to make it to the s senate floor to offer a response. >> that statement is really remarkable in that if the president thinks that we are picking on people, he really does not have any idea of how serious this issue is. >> seems like the testosterone-fueled rhetoric over benghazi is sort of getting out of control. former cia operative bob behr joins us this morning. good morning, bob. >> good morning. >> i want to make it clear to our viewers what lawmakers want to figure out. there are three separate hearings about to take place today. this is what they're trying to figure out. one, why didn't the united states increase security in libya? two, did the obama administration
